"Maybe we got lucky this time- we're just dealing with a simple, ordinary psychopath."
This one'a obviously Rumpelstiltskin. I didn't even have to look it up; we have a bloke who kills people involved in an online RPG unless they guess his name. Serves them right. Role playing games should happen round a table with mates, funny shaped dice and beer, not sat alone in front of a screen, dammit. It's as silly as online card games.
(Incidentally, Rumpelstiltskin, or a play thereof, was the highlight of my acting career. Yes indeed, at the tender age of 10 I brought life to the character of "Third Peasant" on stage in front of staff and parents of Sketchley Hill Primary School. Autographs are charged at a reasonable rate.)
It's another good episode, made even more fun by the literary clues. In fact, it's a very clever plot, reminiscent of Sherlock and, nicely, Woo had a large part in solving the puzzle.
Meanwhile, Juliette's memories may be starting to come back, and Renard begins to embroil himself in plotting against his royal relatives. This is another brilliant episode.
